Fragmentation of Natural Resources Management

Experiences from Lake Kariba

Edited by: Lindah Mhlanga, Kefasi Nyikahadzoi, Tobias Haller

This book is a result of the Defragmenting African Resources Management (DARMA) Project. Lake Kariba - located along the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe - and its environs are a complex transboundary ecosystem with multiple, competing, and often contested resource uses. The book describes the current sectoral approach to natural resource management, the interconnections, and the need to adopt an ecosystem approach. It will be essential reading for students, researchers, academics, and managers in the environmental and natural resources sectors interested in advancing the ecosystems approach to the management of commons in general, and Southern Africa in particular.
